B.M. Vocal Performance Major


MUSIC_WEBSITE_6.jpg
The Vocal Performance major prepares students who desire to perform professionally or who wish to pursue graduate degrees in vocal performance or vocal pedagogy. This degree also provides a solid foundation for students who ultimately desire to teach applied voice either in a private studio or in a collegiate setting. This degree will not adequately prepare students to pass the state teacher certification exam. Students who have a strong interest in vocal or choral performance, opera, or musical theatre are strongly encouraged to choose the Vocal Performance major.  See requirements below.
